Looking at this elegant lighting project by Herald Urena, would you guess that it was produced from just a single sheet of paper? Its layered ribbons, its sharp angles and its complete coverage of the lightbulb within make it difficult for one to consider its humble beginnings.

But indeed, something so complex can be produced using minimal material. In fact, the use of just one element allows the viewer to more adequately appreciate the intricacy of the delicate pendant lamp. Inspired by the more ornate appearance of chandeliers, this exquisite piece achieves its own dramatic aesthetic through the way that its careful folds and curves absorb the warm yellow light within it. Executed as an independent study for junior product design, this lighting project by Herald Urena explores great concepts with elementary tools.
